Christine Assange hints at murdered staffer Seth Rich being DNC leak
Julian Assange’s mother has spoken out regarding the emails leaked from The Democratic National Committee to WikiLeaks, suggesting that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was the source of the files.
In a Twitter outburst, Christine Assange slammed the mainstream media for failing to report the truth regarding the leak.
In what appears to be a reference to Seth Rich being shot dead on the streets of Washington D.C, she added that: “You are shooting the messenger!”
Assange’s mother was speaking out in defense of claims that her son leaked the DNC emails to intentionally harm Hillary Clinton and give Trump the “upper hand” in the presidential election.
This cryptic tweet from the mother of Julian Assange seems to suggest that she has knowledge that Bernie-supporter Seth Rich leaked the Podesta/DNC files to her son’s whistleblowing organization, WikiLeaks.
For Mrs. Assange to mention “shooting the messenger” when DNC staffer/Bernie supporter Seth Rich was killed by a gunshot would be far too coincidental to not be intentional.
Its the duty of media to inform citizens about corruption
What should Wikileaks should have done?
Hold on to them till after the election to advantage #Hillary?
You are shooting the messenger! https://t.co/Hqdtnrvnnx

During an interview in 2016, WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange dropped an undeniable hint that suggested Rich was the WikiLeaks source.
This interview then became the subject of a YouTube video put out by Jimmy Dore which prominently features a clip of Assange discussing Seth Rich’s murder in relation to the risks his sources take.
After announcing that WikiLeaks would pay $20,000 for information leading to the conviction of Rich’s murderer, Assange went on an interview with Nieuwsurr.
During the interview, Assange implied that Rich was his source.
Assange: Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.
Host: That was just a robbery wasn’t it?
Assange: No. There’s no finding.
Host: What are you suggesting?
Assange: I am suggesting that our sources take risks and they become concerned to see things occurring like that.
Host: But was he one of your sources, then?
Assange: We don’t comment on who our sources are.
Host: But why make the suggestion?
Assange: Because we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States and that our sources face serious risks… that’s why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity.
Host: But it’s quite something to suggest a murder… that’s basically what you’re doing.
On Dec. 19, 2017, Assange referred to the video containing the interview as “brilliant,” in a Tweet.
Shortly after, the WikiLeaks office was raided by ominously dressed men in black.
